50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, & 25% Cabernet Franc
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Mernet Reserve, an equal part blend of Estate Merlot, Carneros Merlot, Estate Cabernet Franc and Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, offers up scents of cedarwood, underbrush, forest floor, black currants, sweet kirsch and cola. The complex, evolved aromatics are followed by a medium-bodied wine with beautiful fruit purity, an attractive texture, and a long finish. Consume this superb, complex 2010 over the next 10-15 years.

*Cellar Selection* Few wines, even in Napa, are this rich. It dazzles with explosive cherries, blackberries and anise, with caramelized oak notes. Tannins are thick and serious. Your window of drinkability for this blend of Merlot and Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc begins about 2022.

Bright, dark red. Expressive aromas and flavors of currant, plum, mocha, tobacco, sassafras and earth, accented by fresh herbs and menthol. Offers more life and definition than the 2010 Merlot offering--more personality. Finishes with a firm dusting of tannins and good spicy lift to the flavors of plum, currant and leather.
